Detroit has had some hard times, so I imagined the worst. However, downtown is very well lit, is clean, becoming trendy and not like it has been portrayed over the past several years. Definitely go and drive around; and park and take a walk.

Visited U2 show and walked around the show, loved the beautiful downtown with Jazz Festival happening with Sunday free parking. The only thing you could improve to have better signs how to get to Canadian boarder.

There are plenty of things to see in Detroit, but it's not laid out and populated like more thriving areas. Cherry pick what you want to see and plan your journey. Parking will be terrible and traffic isn't great.
